NORMA JEAN is SHEDDING IN MAY! She hasn’t done this in 10 years! I really think Gina is a miracle worker!






(THANK YOU, EVERYONE for sending prayers, great thoughts and donations to the ER BUCKET FUND for The Golden Carrot yesterday.  We are very, very close to our goal.  Amazing.  Thank you.)

NORMA JEAN is SHEDDING IN MAY! She hasn’t done this in 10 years! I really think Gina is a miracle worker!

Earlier this month, I told you about Gina Vetro and her homeopathic/ayurvedic remedies that have brought my donkey back from the brink (after 3 vets just said she was “old” – I knew I was losing her).  You can read that story here.

Soooooooooo, the next hugely big news is that Norma Jean is shedding!  SHEDDING!  Norma hasn’t shed earlier than August in years.  YEARS!

They say donkeys don’t get Cushings, but they get Fatty Liver Disease, and there is nothing anyone can do.  Well, I am going to say that there IS something you can do… Call Gina!

LOOK at how happy and engaged Norma is now… and she is shedding, trotting around, being loving and defiant, giving her opinion and demanding attention – finally – again!

I am thrilled.

Please, if you have a horse that is ‘off’ and you know it. Call Gina!

LOOK AT HER SHED! AND LOOK AT HER SMILE!

THE FINAL TEST WILL BE HER SUMMER DONKEY PSORIASIS… but even if it comes back, I’m still thrilled with Norma’s surge in health!

Norma has gotten donkey psoriasis on her legs every summer for the last 5 summers.  I have something that gets rid of it  (MAJOR’S SOLUTION/Fungus Free – no affiliation), but it would be great if it didn’t come at all!

So, we will see… crossing fingers.

SANTA DONK DOES EXIST! He sent TREATS to Norma Jean!






Norma Jean (my donkey), has been musing about Santa Donk on her FB page.  Does  he exist?  And, if he does exist, are treats really involved?!

Well, imagine her surprise when I told her that she had a package today!!  She could not believe her ears!!

I helped her open it…

Inside was a real live note from SANTA DONK!  Gasp!

He exists!

Here, I’ve documented the opening of the package!

I had mistakenly opened it prematurely – I didn’t notice that the package was meant for NORMA JEAN.

Inside was a real note from the true Santa Donk, I think…!

Mmmmmm. Apple!  The fragrance was wonderful!

Peppermint and Carrot. Note that the cookies are heart shaped!

LOW SUGAR, LOW STARCH TREATS!  MAMA TESS WOULD  HAVE LOVED THESE!! (no affiliation)

Norma and I were sad that Mama Tess wasn’t around to taste these.  We knew she would have loved them.  And, she could have had them, even though she was Cushings, IR and Metabolic with founder.

What a find!

Here is the website to the Beet-e-bites.  (No affiliation!  I had never heard of these before!)

PICS OF THE HERD LOVING THESE BEET-E-BITES!

The only one of the 9 who didn’t eat them up scrumptiously was Annie.  She has issues with most treats.  She won’t eat apples or carrots, either.  The only tasty treat she appreciates are alfalfa cubes.  So, don’t hold her taste buds against Beet-e-Bites!

The rest LOVED them.  I think Apple was the favorite flavor.  But, they liked them all.  I loved the heart shape!  The bag had 15 treats which is just enough to give to everyone – some get doubles – and it doesn’t go bad.  Nice!!

I started with the apple treats. Here are Finn and BG very intently interested in my after they had their first bites. Finn immediately asked for another – before he even finished his first!

Scoutypants wanted one, for sure. I gave in.

Mo is very discerning… he asked for seconds, too!

This is MM chewing and nodding.

Scouty was smelling Gwen as she ate hers…  I kept tripping on Scout as she followed me around… So I gave Scout another.

This is Wrigley begging for another before he has even swallowed his first! Not bad for a low sugar, low carb snack!!

OK, so this is Annie spitting hers out… Norma is eating hers and Dodger is eating his. Both of them asked for more!

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-7-51-46-pm

Dodger is telling Annie to spit them out his way, next time…  He cannot believe that she spit out the same thing he just relished!

THESE LOW SUGAR LOW CARB TREATS FROM SANTA DONK WERE A BIT HIT!  BEET-E-BITES!
